ney to buy Sanitary napkin
s, Indian man Arunachalam invented a simple Sanitary
napkin manufacturing equipment to make low-cost, high-quality sanitary napkins. He also decided not to sell the machine patent to large companies, but to use it to benefit those women who are as poor as their mothers.
Muruganantham said that at first he was on the road to invention because he saw his newlywed wife being troubled by menstrual problems. Since she can't afford a sanitary napkin at home, she can only replace it with a rag. For low-income families in India, buying sanitary napkins means cutting back on the belly. Later, because his wife was no longer willing to experiment with his research and development results, he had to use the football sac to fill the animal's blood, kneel on his waist, and then use the catheter to introduce blood into his underwear to simulate the women's vacation, and finally test achieved success.
According to reports, the sanitary napkin manufacturing machine is priced at 115,200 rupees per unit (about RMB 11,528), including other related equipment and training fees for installation and use. Muruganantham expects that each sanitary napkin manufacturing site equipped with the machine can provide 3 to 10 jobs for local women and a net profit of 10,000 rupees per month (about RMB 1,000). Last year, about 1,000 machines were installed in 26 states and 6 other countries in India.
According to a Bloomberg news report last year, in India, “millions of women are suppressing their daily sanitary napkins because they are ashamed to speak.” only 12% of the 355 million Indian women of childbearing age will be during menstruation. Use a sanitary napkin or other cleansing method to stop bleeding, while the rest of the women use rags, chaff, dry leaf hay, ash, or old newspapers.
More recent World Health Organization data show that in India, women who die from cervical cancer account for 27% of the world, and the incidence of cervical cancer is twice the world average. Doctors who study related diseases believe that Indian women's menstrual hygiene is one of the reasons. (Internship Compilation: Huang Sachio Review: Zhao Xiaoxia)
